Collection of Antigen Rapid Test (ART) kits for visitors to selected markets and food centres is still ongoing as the Ministry of Health (MOH) continues to investigate cases of Covid-19 infection involving markets and food centres.

These cases are likely seeded by fishmongers who visited Jurong Fishery Port to collect their stock and sell at the markets and food centres, the ministry added.

The latest collection exercise will take place at the Residents’ Committee Centres in the vicinity of the following locations on July 26 and 27, 2021:

  • Geylang Bahru Market and Food Centre (69 Geylang Bahru)
  • 146 Teck Whye Avenue Market (146 Teck Whye Lane)

Those who have visited the markets and food centres in the last 14 days, such as residents living in the area, are strongly encouraged to collect and perform self-testing using the ART kits.

This functions as an added layer of ringfencing to help to identify cases and prevent further transmission, MOH explained.

Those eligible to collect the kits can refer to https://www.gowhere.gov.sg/art to check on the nearest collection location.
